The Colts released their inactives for their game against the Raiders. There are seven of them, including two of their best players.
Their are seven players who are inactive for today’s game. The list isn’t actually as long as it could have been, which bodes well for the Colts. But two of their best players are on this list and will not play today. We knew about one of them ahead of time, but not the other.
Darius Leonard is out with his concussion. That much was known before today. This will be the second straight game that he will miss. He will be replaced again by rookie Bobby Okereke. He should play better this week than he did last week.
Unfortunately, T.Y. Hilton is also inactive for this game. He is missing this game because of a quad injury that he suffered a couple of weeks ago. They want him to get healthy before next week’s showdown in Kansas City. They hope they can win this one without him.
Malik Hooker is inactive, as he will be for the next few weeks. Tyquan Lewis is out because of his ankle injury. Jonathan Williams, while being a full participant in practice all week, will be inactive as well. Hale Hengtes and Le’Raven Clark are the two other inactives.
This list doesn’t include Pierre Desir, Al-Quadin Muhammad, or Jabaal Sheard. All were game-time decisions. It looks like all will play in this one, which means Sheard will be making his season debut. Hopefully he plays well in a Colts win.
